the PINE KNOT 



is published annually by the students 
of Atlantic Christian College, Wilson, 
North Carolina. In it we attempt to 
show the life and activities of our col- 
lege. The staff hopes that the pictures 
and words not only will reveal the 
campus life but also will help to ex- 
press the warm and sincere friendliness 
of our school. May the following mem- 
ories of classes, organizations, athletics, 
and fellowship serve as an everlasting 
reminder in the future of time spent 
on our campus.

To the sacred halls of Kinsey 
That we've come to love so dear, 
We sing this song of sadness 
As our parting is near. 

We will not forget your mem'ries 
Of the years we spent with thee; 
Though your walls remain no longer 
You will live eternally. 

And now your halls are hushed; 

No footsteps can you hear 

Echo down the halls and disappear. 

And as we sadly leave 

Our hearts will ever grieve 

To know that you no longer will be here. 

To the sacred halls of Kinsey 
Where we lived and learned so well, 
With hearts of love and sorrow 
Every voice bids farewell.

Kinsey Hall — 

A place where students of five decades have learned the meaning of education; the endless strug- 
gle to find the meanings of life through the wisdom of the ages — through books 

A place where religious life is intertwined with the other aspects of education; where all denomi- 
nations may experience a Christian learning process; where Christianity has become a part of 
the student's daily life 

A place for social development; where opportunities for friendships flourish; where common ex- 
periences form a binding tie that lasts 

A place which, standing in the heart of a bustling and growing campus, symbolizes the efforts and 
roles of men in the past, who seeing possibilities of a unique Christian college, combined 
into one structure the necessities of a beginning 

A place which stands now crumbled and worn, yet showing a dignity of accomplishment and 
achievement; which, long after it has gone, will still remain in spirit to provide the torch for 
progress 



To thee, Kinsey Hall, we dedicate this, the Pine Knot of 1956

Wilson, N. C. 



The Student Body: 



This has been a happy and wonderful year on the campus because it has been a year 
of great responsibility in which administration, faculty and students have worked together 
in the achievement of our greatest year. Sharing with us has been a diligent Board of Trus- 
tees and an enthusiastic Alumni Association. 

I need not enumerate the achievements, but I would rather pay tribute to the loyalty, 
devotion to duty, spirit of co-operation, and unfailing commitment to the ideals of this 
institution, which have made such achievements possible. You may enjoy a just sense of 
pride in being a part of this victory. 

As we look forward to the good things of the future, we remember with humility these 
achievements of the past. On them the future is built!

It is the aim of the Student Christian Association 
of Atlantic Christian College to create in the individual 
an awareness of God in all aspects of college life. The 
programs of this organization, which are developed by 
the S.C.A. Cabinet, are built around the students' 
interests. 

A monthly schedule includes worship, recreation, 
discussion, and business. The S.C.A. conducts its pro- 
grams each Tuesday night. Some of the outstanding 
programs this year have been: the visit of Kenneth 
Henry for a vesper service; discussion topics pertain- 
ing to courtship and marriage; and fellowship hours 
of singing, square dancing, and folk games. 

Among the special events sponsored by the S.C.A. 
this year were Religious Emphasis Week, a Christmas 
pageant, World Day of Prayer Service, a city-wide 
Palm Sunday Musical Service, and Pre-Easter Week 
services. 

The S.C.A. in all its endeavors strives to promote 
Christian love and fellowship among the members of 
our college family with the hope that this love will 
not die at the end of our college life but will be a 
binding tie.

approved by the administration. 

The first night the amendment 
was introduced, the board ap- 
proved it by a 12-2 vote. However, 
before the amendment could be 
placed before the student body, Dr. 
White asked that the board grant 
the authority to the administration 
to put the new committee on an 
experimental basis. Despite a 7-4 
vote in favor of this, the matter 
was formally dropped until the 
meeting of the Board of Trustees 
in June. Negative voters felt the 
students should be consulted and 
that proposed changes should fol- 
low more proper channels. The*'

As we blew the dust off the desks and unpacked left- 
over materials from the 1955 Pine Knot, we treasured the 
thought of the completion of this year's annual and won- 
dered how long it would take to bring the Pine Knot of 
1956 into reality. The road has been long and hard, and 
much of our time has been consumed in scheduling and 
taking pictures, doing layouts and paste-ups and typing. 
Now you have the finished product in your hand. If this 
product could speak, it would tell of the time and labor 
given in order that it might be typical of our campus life.

MUSIC 



The Atlantic Christian Chorale was formed as a touring group for performances in 
eastern North Carolina during the spring. They presented programs in various churches 
and made three television appearances. Their repertoire consisted of madrigals, several 
jazz numbers, and two large works by Bach and Buxtehude, as well as several short sacred 
numbers. 

Members of the* chorale were Eleanor Hatsell, Sue Brock, Carolyn Miles, Lynn White, 
Frances Herring, Julia Banks, Marjorie Blinson, Lelia Mae Goff, Marie Warren, Shirley 
House, Joe Hardegree, Blackie Jones, Leslie Wilkins, Bill Boswell, B. G. Campbell, Little- 
john Faulkner, Claude Fulghum, Dick Tyson, and James Kirby. 






During the first semester the mixed chorus, 
with an enrollment of seventy-five students, did 
a Christmas cantata by Bach, For Unto Us A 
Child Is Born, as its major work. The principal 
work of the second semester was a Buxtehude 
cantata, Rejoice, Beloved Christians, which was 
presented in a chapel program April 6. Among 
the other works performed were Vaughn Wil- 
liams' Five Mystical Songs. Besides the chapel 
programs, the chorus also gave a concert at 
Homecoming. 

The Women's Ensemble, pictured above, pre- 
sented the Luebeck Christmas Cantata for voices, 
clarinet, and piano at the annual Christmas 
program held in Howard Chapel. 

Miss Eleanor Hatsell, voice student, presented 
her graduation recital March 20. Her program 
consisted of a concert aria by Handel, four British 
songs, and a Telemann cantata, Tempt Me Not, 
with recorder obligato performed by Miss Lydia 
James. Miss Betty Jean Outlaw assisted with a 
group of Chopin Etudes. Miss Hatsell was a 
student of Professor C. Lynn Brown, director of 
music. 




The band of Atlantic Christian 
College during the first semester was 
under the baton of Dr. Millard Burt, 
who faithfully served it for two 
years. Under his direction, the band 
participated in the Harvest Festival 
Parade in Wendell, the Homecoming 
Parade, and the Wilson Christmas 
Parade. The band also presented a 
concert in Howard Chapel as one of 
the homecoming activities.' For the 
homecoming parade new majorette 
uniforms of blue and white satin 
were made. 

During the second semester Mr. 
Arthur Clifford of Wilson has served 
as director for the band. The main 
event for this semester was the par- 
ticipation in the annual Azalea Festi- 
val held in Wilmington. Other 
activities have included various con- 
certs and parades.

The dramatic organization on campus, Stage and Script, is 
under the direction of Mrs. Doris C. Holsworth. Any interested 
student is eligible for club membership and, if not interested

tunities that include lighting, make-up, costuming, and publicity. 
The first three-act production of the college year was Robinson 
Jeffers' version of the Greek tragedy Medea directed by Mrs. 
Holsworth. Three one-act plays, Joint-Owners in Spain. The 
Try sting Place, and an original play written by Jimmie Bur- 
nette entitled Valley of the Shadow, were presented later in

Religious Emphasis Week, an 
annual observance under the 
auspices of the Student Christian 
Association, was held on the cam- 
pus of Atlantic Christian College, 
October 17-21. This was a week 
of classroom discussions, semi- 
nars, chapel services, and other 
religious activities. Principal 
speakers for the event were Miss 
Anne Queen of Greensboro; the 
Reverend Kermit Traylor of 
Winston-Salem; the Reverend 
James Sosebee of Atlanta, Geor- 
gia; and Mr. Claude Shotts of 
Chapel Hill. The week was con- 
cluded by a special communion 
service held in Howard Chapel 
on Friday morning. It was a fit- 
ting climax to a week of empha- 
sizing the religious aspects of 
"Christianity in a Christian Col- 
lege," the theme of the entire 
week.

The Pan-Hellenic Council is a governing body for 
the seven Greek letter organizations of Atlantic Chris- 
tian College. The council is composed of the presidents 
of each sorority and fraternity plus an additional mem- 
ber from each organization. It also contains a mini- 
mum of two faculty members. This council strives to 
discuss and manage matters that concern all these 
organizations. The Greek letter organizations make 
up an important phase of college life, and the Pan- 
Hellenic Council aids them as they work together in 
upholding the aims of the college and striving for its 
betterment.

The annual homecoming of Atlantic Christian College was held on Saturday, November 
19. The celebration was highlighted by a luncheon, musical program, basketball game, and 
dance. Because of the prevailing rains, the parade was held on Monday, November 21. On 
homecoming day open house was observed from 3:30 to 5:30, so that the guests and alumni 
might visit various buildings on our campus. At eight o'clock the Atlantic. Christian Bull- 
dogs challenged the Norfolk Division of William and Mary in their first game of the season.

DANCES 




As one of the festivities of 
the Christmas season a semi- 
formal dance was held on 
December 12 at the Wilson 
Country Club. The highlight 
of the dance was the crown- 
ing of the 1956 Pine Knot 
queen, Miss Annette Bare- 
foot, by Mr. Richard Ziglar, 
editor of the Pine Knot. The 
figure, composed of ladies 
who revolved around the 
queen extending a greeting 
of "Merry Christmas," fol- 
lowed the crowning. After 
the completion of the figure, 
a dance was given in honor 
of the queen and the mem- 
bers of the figure. 



r^ 



Last October Sigma Tau Chi soror- 
ity sponsored the annual Harvest 
Dance. To carry .out the idea of the 
harvest season, the Bert Hardy Din- 
ing Hall was gaily decorated with 
autumn leaves, corn stalks, and a 
golden harvest moon.

The traditional homecom- 
ing dance was held on No- 
vember 19 in the college 
dining hall. It was well 
attended by students, alumni, 
and faculty who participated 
in the gaiety of the home- 
coming festivities. 



Tradition was broken on the cam- 
pus of Atlantic Christian College as 
the women invited the men to a 
Leap Year Dance, which was held 
in the Bert Hardy Dining Hall on 
February 10. Entertainment was 
provided by Mr. Leslie Wilkins, Mr.

CHEERLEADERS 



This year, as in the past two, the 
cheerleaders were elected by the student 
body. They, along with the pep band, 
followed the Bulldogs and pushed them 
on to victory as the gym echoed with the 
sounds of "fight, Bulldogs, fight." 

The cheerleaders were under the 
supervision of the Reverend Alan Sharp. 
His assistance was of great value to the 
cheerleaders as he arranged transporta- 
tion and aided them in numerous other 
ways. The school spirit displayed by 
the Atlantic Christian student body has 
been tremendous during the past two 
years and a great deal of the credit must 
go to the cheerleaders.

WOMEN'S INTRAMURAL 



The Women's Intramural Program of Atlantic Christian Col- 
lege is organized primarily for the women on campus who 
are interested in sports. The program is directed by the Intra- 
mural Council. 

During the first semester the activities included contests in 
volleyball, ping-pong, and soccer. The second semester included 
basketball, softball, tennis, and a Field and Sports Day. The 
competing groups range' from sorority and dormitory women 
to day students. 

The Field and Sports Day was held in the spring. The events 
included relays, skill contests, and a softball game. Points were 
awarded to each participant, and prizes were given to the win- 
ners. The climax of the day was a wiener roast. 

The activities of the intramural program required a great 
deal of planning. It is only through the Intramural Council that 
the women can have such a beneficial and entertaining program.

MEN'S INTRAMURAL 




The Atlantic Christian College Men's Intramural Athletic Associa- 
tion has as its objective, the promotion of a program of organized 
athletic competition among the students. Every male student en- 
rolled at the college is eligible to participate in intramural activities. 

The governing body of the organization is the Intramural Council. 
It is made up of one representative from each participating organiza- 
tion. This body strives to promote interest and deals with any prob- 
lems which may arise. 

During the first semester such activities as clock golf, tag football, 
tennis, soccer, volleyball, horseshoes, cross country, and table tennis 
are played. Wrestling, badminton, basketball, foul shooting, golf, 
softball, table tennis, horseshoes, and track and field are carried on 
during the second semester. 

Points are earned for organizations in the race for the all-year 
intramural championship. Members of these organizations also earn 
points for individual awards given at the end of the year.

JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL 



Atlantic Christian's Bullpups, under the coach- 
ing reins of Ronald Percise, played the roughest 
schedule that a JV team from this school has 
ever played. 

The little "Dogs" battled through a 20 game 
schedule and finished with a 12-8 record. Among 
the opposition faced by Percise's charges were 
the strong freshman teams from Carolina and 
Duke and a number of top flight junior college 
quints. 

Kinston High School afforded the Bullpups 
their co-captains for the campaign. Darwin 
Williams and Robert Whaley, who once captained 
the Red Devils, were elected by their teammates. 
Whaley led the scoring for the freshmen squad, 
and Williams, who was voted the most valuable 
player in the East-West All-Star Game, proved 
himself with a fine floor game and scoring ability. 
Both boys did double duty as they also played 
varsity ball. Another freshman standout, Harold 
Woodruff, saw varsity action. 

Excluding high school and semi-pro competi- 
tion, the Bullpups averaged better than 80 points 
per game. Their best night's work came against 
the JV team from Pfeiffer College when they 
downed the visitors 107-98.

VARSITY BASKETBALL 



Although the Bulldogs did not successfully 
defend their North State Conference crown, their 
19-7 overall record cannot be viewed without 
pride. 

Jack McComas' crew went to work this year 
in a bad spot. They were champions and they 
were the team to beat. In their opening con- 
ference game, the 'Dogs found that the going 
was to be rough when the High Point Panthers 
grabbed a 103-94 decision from them. 

The Bulldogs were to taste defeat three more 
times during the regular conference season. They 
lost to Elon, East Carolina, and Lenoir Rhyne 
to bring their record to a 12-4 mark and rode 
into Lexington seeded number two in the an- 
nual tournament. 

In battling their way through the rough cam- 
paign, McComas' fifth at A.C., the Bulldogs 
extended their home winning streak to 32 games. 
Lenoir Rhyne was the last club to turn the trick 
on the 'Dogs stomping grounds, and that was 
December 11, 1953. 

Four seniors finished their college careers at 
Lexington. Bill Beacham, Jerry Williams, Bill 
Tomlinson, and Kim Buchanan rounded out 
their four years of eligibility. 

The conference tournament at Lexington 



matched the four seeded teams against the four 
second-division clubs. A.C. was pitted against 
Western Carolina in the opening round. After 
one of the wierdest and most thrilling games in 
tournament history the 'Dogs disposed of the 
Catamounts, 82-80. Three overtime periods were 
required, and in each of the five minute periods, 
Widgeon held the ball for four and one-half 
minutes. Then A.C. worked for one shot and 
each time they missed. Finally, as the third 
period ended, Beacham was fouled. He hit both 
his tosses and A.C. had earned the right to meet 
Lenoir Rhyne in the semi-finals. 

The long, gruelling contest had taken its toll, 
and the Bulldogs surrended a 113-96 shooting 
match to the Bears. 

A high scoring outfit, A.C. posted a ninety-two 
per cent average for the year. Their best effort 
came against Pikeville, Kentucky, in a 120-70 
rout of the boys from the blue grass state. 

A.C. placed two men on the all-conference 
team. Kim Buchanan was a top choice, and John 
Marley made the honor squad for the second 
year in a row. Marley's forty-seven point total 
against Western Carolina was the top individual 
scoring effort for a single game in the state this 
year.

Atlantic Christian's athletic prowess, diamond-wise, 
was not so successful as its court warfare. Coach 
McComas got good pitching from his moundsmen, but 
his hitters could- not deliver at crucial points. A.C. 
ended its season by splitting a double-header with 
East Carolina, the conference champions. The 1955 
club included the following: 

First row: Norman Catlett, Raeford Fulghum, Dick 
Rogers, Jimmy Williams, James Davis, John Kernodle, 
Perry Moore, Ronald Percise. Second row: Jerry Wil- 
liams, Ronald Baker, Jack Harris, Kenneth Thomas, 
Scott McPhail, Billy Williams, Thurmond Phillips, 
Durwood Vick, Kenneth Fulghum.

Yes, this is the end. 

Our labor has been long; 

Many hours have been spent 

To build this yearbook 

As we strove to show student life in all 

events. 
Our mission having been accomplished, 
We, the staff of 1956, bring to a close 
This yearbook with a hope that it will 

meet with your consent. 

Yes, this is the end. 

"But, memories are made of this." 

And these memories will never end. 

The yearbook must close, 

But that which lies within its covers shall 
never cease. 

Yes, this is the end; 

But, to you, the characters within this book, 
we leave these memories as we have striven 
to give them to you in the Pine Knot of 1956.
